Dr. Sara Caldwell grew up in Atlanta Georgia with her mom and step-dad, one brother and a house full of pets. She is the owner of the practice and its primary veterinarian. She always wanted to be a veterinarian since she was a little girl rehabilitating tiny birds that fell from their nest and putting pretend casts on her teddy bears. She is thoroughly fulfilled by relieving the suffering of animals and is honored to be able to do so as a livelihood. She enjoys horses, specifically dressage, although she has evented, foxhunted and played polo. Her favorite dog breeds tend to be brachycephalic (like pugs and bulldogs) but she has also owned and loved dachschunds, Danes, and heelers. She currently shares her home (and her heart!) with a pug, a Clyde cross horse, and her very sweet small child :)
We will happily give directions!
Conveniently located in Happy Valley next to the New Seasons Market!

Grace is from the Oregon coast, growing up in North Bend. She then came to Portland to work in the restaurant industry. After moving to Hawaii, and realizing that the work she wanted was not with food but with animals, Grace moved back to Portland and enrolled in the Veterinary Technology program at Portland Community College for a career change.
In the winter of 2011, Grace married her best friend, Hac. In the beginning of 2012, they bought their first house together and are busy filling it with animals; they are living with 2 dogs (Tica and Scruffy), 3 cats (Violet, Neptune and Nyx), in addition to chickens and rabbits.
Grace graduated the PCC Veterinary Technology program in 2012 and started work in the field just before graduation.
Grace enjoys spending her free time gardening, reading books, cooking, and traveling, as well as taking Tica and Scruffy for long hikes, especially around the Sandy River Delta.
Her passions in veterinary medicine include behavior, dentistry, labwork, and client education.
